Dutch Red Chili Seeds
Info: The Dutch Red Chili was probably bred in Indonesia from Cayennes, and went from there to the Netherlands. Today it is one of the most frequently sold chili types in Central Europe. The plants are bushy and grow up to between 70 and 100 cm in height. The Chilies resemble Cayennes, and ripen from green to a full red, but are somewhat fleshier and sweeter in flavour. Due to their pleasant mild spiciness, they are suitable for salads as well as cooking, pickling, grilling and drying.
Care: The germination temperature is between 20 und 28°C (8 - 20 day germination period), therefore the use of a greenhouse and a heating pad is recommended. The plants need fresh, well-fertilised, permeable soil, and do not tolerate waterlogging. They should be planted in a sunny, protected place with at least 6 hours of sunlight - preferably more. Put the plants outside approx. 2 to 3 weeks after the last frost.
